Kim Kardashian's '60 Minutes' Interview Is a Real Eye-Opener

Talk about irony. On Sunday, Kim Kardashian was featured in a 60 Minutes segment about her life and social media. The interview was conducted before her Paris robbery, and, given how carefree and praise-worthy Kim is of social media in the piece, there's a good chance her answers would be much different now.

When Bill Whitaker asked the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star if she attributed her fame to Twitter, Instagram, and Snapchat, she essentially said that she does. "Not in this way. I totally attribute my career to social media," Kim said when Whitaker asked if her fame would exist without social media. The mom of two also said that she can "handle" everything that comes with social media -- aka, having zero privacy in her life. And she even said that she thought that the benefits outweighed the cons of living such a public life.

Kim, who's remained silent on social media since she was assaulted, also said that, despite what everyone says, she does have a talent. "It is a talent to have a brand that's really successful off of getting people to like you for you," she said. "I would think that has to involve some kind of talent, you know?" She also added that the money's "not bad."

Since the interview has aired, Kim hasn't said anything, but it would be fascinating to hear what she thought of it. Are her opinions different now? Does she think the negatives outweigh the benefits at this point? Is any of it worth it? 

From what we've heard, Kim planned on taking a month off of work, so she should be returning to the public eye soon. It will be interesting to see how her approach to social media changes in the upcoming weeks. But even more so, it'll be good to see our girl again.
